Three rescue craft came to the aid of a disabled cargo ship adrift in heavy seas and in danger of hitting the rocks off the Irish coast.

The Irish Coast Guard called upon three Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeboats from Dunmore East, Kilmore Quay and Rosslare to aid the drifting vessel until a tug could arrive.
Dunmore East's Trent, Kilmore's Tamar and Rosslare Harbour's Severn secured tow lines to the Lily B and battled 6-meter swells for 12 hours to ensure the cargo vessel remained at sea away from the rocks, said volunteer organization RNLI. ■
